Food Safety Guidelines

Food safety is an integral part of managing food donations and distributions and it is paramount to minimizing the risk of distributing or serving unsafe foods.

These guidelines are to help you to develop a thorough understanding, along with your donors, with regard to which foods you will be able to distribute and how they should be safely stored and packaged while awaiting pick up.

Guidelines are also provided to outline the conditions needed for the safe transportation of food from the donor to Food Bank/Agency and to the clients.
